November 20, 2014 - Princess Cruises Founder Stanley B. McDonald, 94, from Bellevue, Washington passed away at his home.

Stanley B. McDonald developed his business sense at a young age. He had a paper route at 12, started cleaning planes in exchange for rides in the aircraft at age 13, then started installing drapes for a furniture company when he was 14.

He started many companies over the years, his first while in his 20s. But he is most well-known for starting Princess Cruises, which sprang out of the need for more hotel rooms during the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962.
